Translation of the history page has very low priority, but I'll do it eventually. Until then you can read this aweful automatic translation:

Why?

More by accident I noticed that my NAS can also act as a Web server. After I had worked through the fun of the Netgear index.html tutorial on setting up a basic via dyndns and this was found even for the world, I thought to myself that I could actually also time to build a serious website. Although I had previously been a home page, this was not an end in itself (its own gallery of projects) and for other people rather uninteresting. Just the way home, the one with friends typing in the browser to show times what you may;).

For a moment I even thought about writing a blog, but yes, I personally read almost none, since most of them only in order to address what is going straight to the author's mind. My web page there should be quite different. So what's on my side?

Since I'd made it after much tinkering, finally, to encrypt my USB stick so that it (at ANY computer without admin rights) can be decoded, its data automatically over the Internet secured (if you lose him twice), with portable programs is fitted, in turn, their configurations synchronized with my laptop, etc. pp. I thought I would need the instructions how to set up something to share, actually with humanity. And so the idea of this site was born: a collection of tutorials on how to make his life better through free technology a little bit. Since I am constantly upset about poorly written instructions, I would like to write completely foolproof instructions, but only for things that have real benefits. The number of items will be growing very slowly, and this page will only get a few visitors (since one read each article only once). For interested so it would be ideal if I could manage to incorporate an RSS feed, but there is still plenty of time later. Only once have to run the basic system.

Preparation

For the above-described type of site is probably the best a wiki. Only what? For tausenenden one can lose track of, especially if they are the only Web-limited experience in creating a small static HTML page. Fortunately I was able to Golem.de than just a message about the Wikipedia layout was re-design, had the nerve to ask under the nick “ServerN00b” the gathering “IT professionals” who have the best wiki software would (be read here) . Luckily I have not the administrators moved to Offtopic. From the comments here has convinced me Dokuwiki because it does not save the items in a database, but each bears in a separate text file. That makes the move very easy, if my NAS times too small to be on my homepage. The next day it went off at last.

Milestones

Start was on March 28 2010

Approx. at 12:00 I started to read myself into the topic and was erstmal (ssh from all unfamiliar terms, CGI, PHP) like the dead. But fortunately there is the Internet, where excellent guides, discussion forums, find IRCChat (freenode) and so on. , At 18:18 on 28 March 2010 had finally arrived: The wiki was in the default configuration online, and contained even a small test page by me. I had actually made me stop, but I was then packed yet, I still had to change the layout and write in a little bit. This history article here is already much longer than I had planned it and written entirely in one piece. It is really incredible, this morning while I was still completely clueless I write now in a functional, good-looking, globally available wiki. Let's see if tomorrow it is still there. ;)

FIXME the following stuff is translated by me

2010-03-31: Available Languages: German and English

Thanks to the excellent translation plug-in MZwiki is now available in multiple languages. Luckily, I met the author of the current “typo” template at #dokuwiki on freenode, who handed me the code fragment that was needed, to enable a multi language navigation sidebar. The only thing left to do is to visually integrate the language selection into the current design, but this can be postponed until later

2010-04-20: Restructuring and a first useful article

Instead of linking this history page directly it is now located in the “other”-section of the newly created directory page. The tutorials are still not done, but at least there's now a page that might be interesting to students of TU Darmstadt: opening hours of various institutions 1)

1)
this page is currently only available in German, since it is unlikely that non-German speakers would find this page useful. If you just started studying at TU Darmstadt, you should check out this page, even if you don't speak German yet; the page contains a big time table that should be understandable even without knowing German
